Abstract

The paper argues how best change management can be implemented when using personal and organisational strategies. The paper shares the author’s experiences in utilising best practices related to change management. It can be evident that managing organisational change will be more successful when applying simple principles i.e., thoughtful planning and sensitive implementation, and above all, consultation with, and involvement of, the people affected by the changes Also, achieving personal change will be more successful when used at relevant occasions. Change management cannot be implemented in a forceful environment and normally more problems will arise as a result. Change must be realistic, achievable and measurable. These aspects are especially relevant to managing personal change. Before starting organisational change, ask yourself: What do we want to achieve with this change, why, and how will we know that the change has been achieved? Who is affected by this change, and how will they react to it? How much of this change can we achieve ourselves, and with what parts of the change do we need help? The paper concludes with a description of how those personal and organisational change aspects become useful when realistically implementing change management.
